Artichoke Chicken combines the classic flavors of spinach and artichoke dip on top of juicy chicken breasts, pan-seared and baked in the oven. The spinach and artichoke filling is made using fresh spinach, chopped canned artichokes, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, garlic, and onion powder. It's then placed into seared chicken breast and baked to create this creamy and keto-friendly Artichoke Chicken, containing only 9.3 net carbs per serving.

Artichokes are extremely low in fat and calories and high in fiber, keeping you feeling full and satisfied for longer. Pair this dish with a refreshing side salad or keto dish, and dig in.
